Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah’s move to Saudi Arabia heated up rapidly just as the European transfer market was about to close shortly. The Middle Eastern club with ample financial resources presented offers totaling as much as £150 million, which were quickly rejected.
However, Al-Ittihad are not ready to give up and are said to be attempting a second attempt for £200 million, and it is rumored that they may make a concrete move before “September 7,” when the transfer market in the Saudi Arabian Pro League ends.
Jurgen Klopp has continually denied that he would release the player and has maintained that he will not sell him for any amount this summer. According to Foot Mercato’s Santi Aouna, the Egyptian winger is likely to remain at Anfield instead of joining a club in the Middle East.
However, a different story could unfold in next summer’s transfer market: in June 2024 he will be 32 years old and will have one year left on his contract. If a huge offer arrives, as it did this summer, Liverpool may use the money to reinvest in the young winger.
He has scored more than 180 goals for Liverpool and has two goals and two assists in four games as a regular this season. Although his dribbling ability is not as sharp as it was in his heyday, he continues to lead the attack with a style of play that allows him to make the most of his teammates’ strengths with increasing precision.
What can we expect from Mohamed Salah at Anfield this season?
